Week 7 Homework – Last one for this year! Due – 29/11/19

INSPIRING QUOTES BY LEADERS

Using Pixelmator (or another school app of your choice) create a poster to display a quote that explains to you something about leadership. If you don’t recognise the author of the quote then make sure you do a little research before sharing your quote with the class.

The quote needs to be clear and be a part of a classroom display of INSPIRATIONAL QUOTES.

Homework Term 4 – Week 6

Student Leadership Presentation:

For this week’s homework, and as part of our leadership investigation, you are going to prepare a presentation about yourself and your leadership skills.

Your presentation can be one of the following:

  • A speech
  • A Keynote Presentation
  • An iMovie
  • If you have another idea you need to check with your teacher

Your Presentation should include:

  1. Information about yourself eg: hobbies.
  2. Explain the leadership skills you have and perhaps an example of a time that you’ve used them.
  3. Provide some examples of leadership opportunities that you’ve had. These can include opportunities both at school and outside of school. For example JSC/EC and/or captaining a sport team.
  4. Explain why you would like to be a school leader.

Your presentation should be between 1 and 2 minutes long.

  • Now that you’ve completed your presentation and you are considering applying to be a Grade 6 School Leader in 2020, you may consider using this presentation in support of your application.

You might like to structure your letter like this:

Paragraph 1 – Thank the person you are writing to for a letter or package that they may have sent you.

Paragraph 2 – Describe the conditions in the trenches.

Paragraph 3 – Have you been sick or injured? Describe your injury or illness.

Paragraph 4 – Describe what you miss about home – or what you are looking forward to on your  “return”.
